          Comments about Verbatim 2TB Store 'n' Save USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive:

          This is the best desktop hard drive I've ever had; installation was very simple and drive was immediately recognized in OS X 10.8.5. I use the drive as a back-up to my photos, music, and videos. As recommended by other reviewers, I ended up removing the software that came with the drive, though I did copy it to another drive just in case I ever need it. Best feature to me, aside its capacity, is the ability to turn off the drive when it's not needed.

          Great product with a super warranty (the 7-year protection was a big plus in my decision, along with the comments of other reviewers). Very competitive price and as always backed up by the great B&H service!

          Most definitely recommend this drive.

            Comments about Verbatim 2TB Store 'n' Save USB 3.0 Desktop Hard Drive:

            Hi. This is the second verbatim I've bought and all seems well so far. I like that it has a turn off switch that means I don't have to unplug all the time. Slightly different shape than the last one so they don't stack which is annoying (1 or 2 years earlier.)

              The Verbatim 2TB desktop hard drive is the best desktop hard drive available. Simple to set up and recognize with Windows 8. My older desktop hard drive, a Verbatim 500GB, is 8 years old and still works great, but it is just not large enough for my files and backups. Great product and great warranty.

                  I have bought seven of these beauties and this new one is even better. It turns off and on with the computer so I never leave it accidentally on over night. I have my movie collection stored on one, my music on another, and I'm looking for more backups; I'll get another one of these.

                  This is a great backup hard drive. Not a single problem in setting it up, and it appears fully reliable (and considering Verbatim gives a SEVEN year warranty, they're confident in it). I do wish that "fanless design" external drives would not be the norm nowadays, as the drive does run hotter than I like. One star comes off for what may be insufficient cooling.

                        Fast USB 3.0 interface, classy chassis, and very competitive price make this a great buy, especially with an industry leading 7 year warrantee! One caution, use the installed Reformatter software carefully - even if you open and run it from the new drive, it searches for other Verbatim drives and you may format those inadvertently....like I did!

                          So far, I've had no problems.

                            Finally all my Seagate USB drives have died and witout having their orgional boxs no warranty.
                            So I now have 4 2tb Verbatim drives with their 7 year warranty. The only drives with a warranty this long.
                            I like that the have an on-off switch.
                            Makes it easier to use USB drives as backup drives.
                            Who needs them running all the time.
                            Great drives and a good buy.

                              i studied reviews for months before this purchase--so many horror stories out there about other drives--first clue Verbatim is good, the 7 year warranty!
                              Drive was recognized by win7, first thing you need to do is format the drive--it comes FAT32--don't worry bout the software that's pre-loaded--in my opinion the Nero software that is bundled is completely worthless as i have considered Nero the most system hoggish slow software out there...the other software is Verbatim's "format" software, again, totally not needed----------USB 3.0 is screamin fast..........

                                This external Hard Drive is very easy to use.
                                Just plug it in ( USB and power), set your backup schedule. then you are all set.

                                  This unit acts as my backup to exsisting files on my laptop, but also as a final archive for my images. This is the third one I've bought prior to Verbatim making a 2TB unit the other two are 1TB units. And I've made the recommendation at my employer and we are now using them here in the newspaper office.

                                  Very dependable with no issues.
